  • Cataract: Latest Updates on Its Management
    Today's surgical technology has made it possible for patients to achieve spectacles independence in a safe and efficient manner.

  • Glaucoma is the Silent Thief of Sight – How to nab it in time?
    Why does glaucoma still continue to be so in the developed countries? How do we diagnose and treat glaucoma early? Is glaucoma screening important? This talk will also include emerging new medical and surgical treatments that are in the pipeline for our patients.
